Retro Tin Suitcase

R240.00 R144.00

I fell in love with this little tin suitcase the moment I spotted it in an antique store in KZN! It didn’t really go with the rest of the pieces in the shop, but I can understand why the owner bought it – while it has a bit of an ’80s vibe to it, the old metal handle sets it apart as something quite special. And of course I love the hearts! I don’t know much about it other than the fact that it’s French, and was produced by a company going by the name of Pierre Henry, which I suspect is still going today. It would originally have had a long satchel handle which is missing, and there are one or two dings in the metal, plus the one lock is a bit dodgy, but the lock on the other side works fine, so you can still secure it closed.

A super cool suitcase that you’re not likely to see again anytime soon!

Dimensions: 39cm tall x 30cm wide x 9cm deep

NB: We’re overseas until the 14th July, so unfortunately there will be a delay in posting/couriering items until we’re back.
